Verdict

Musawama is hard to fancy but the remainder can be given some sort of chance. Kalann may improve for the longer trip and Giant's Quest won over 2m at Leopardstown last year, though he's 5lb higher today. Cullentry Royal scored over 1m6f at the same track in March and has his first start since but RAWNAQ may just edge this having finished third to Mutual Regard at the Curragh a fortnight ago. That was his first start of the year and better is expected from Matthew Smith's charge today.
